Nigeria Research Network
The Nigeria Research Network connects European, American, and Nigerian academics who have extensive experience with empirical and development-oriented research in northern Nigeria.
It is based at ODID at the University of Oxford, where it currently involves Abdul Raufu Mustapha, David Ehrhardt, and Hannah Hoechner. Other members include Phil Ostien, Kate Meagher, Rachael Diprose, Adam Higazi, and several PhD and MPhil researchers. The NRN collaborates closely with the development Research and Project Centre in Kano, which has an excellent track record of designing and implementing community development projects in Nigeria’s northern States.
